Narrative:

On June 7, 2017, deputies from the Thousand Oaks Police Department responded to the 400 block of Serento Circle for a reported home invasion robbery.  Responding deputies learned three suspects forced entry into the victim's home, battered him, and stole approximately twelve-hundred dollars.  The victim sustained minor injuries and was treated by paramedics on scene.

 

The case was assigned to the East County Major Crimes Unit and the Thousand Oaks Police Special Enforcement Unit.  During the course of the investigation, detectives discovered both the victim and suspects were involved in the illegal sales of pharmaceutical pills.  Both the victim and suspects had been visiting several doctors throughout the Southern California area obtaining prescription medications, in a practice commonly referred to as 'Pill farming.'  It was also determined the victim owed the suspects a large sum of money based on their illegal pharmaceutical sales.  Detectives believe the motive behind the robbery was to forcibly collect the proceeds from illegal pharmaceutical sales.  Investigators ultimately identified two of the robbery suspects as Brandon Jefferson and Daniel Rogers.   

 

On August 8, 2017, detectives located Jefferson in the City of Thousand Oaks and subsequently arrested him for his involvement in the home invasion robbery.  Detectives later located Rogers in the City of Burbank and arrested him for his involvement in the home invasion robbery.

 

Jefferson and Rogers were booked at the Ventura County Sheriff's East County Jail for a violation of 211 PC ' Home Invasion Robbery and 182(a)(1) PC ' Conspiracy to commit a crime.  Their bail was set at $500,000.  Jefferson and Rogers are due in court on August 8, 2017, for arraignment.
